Video: Learning from Soil With Lysimeters


The Soil Health Interpretive Centre (SHIC) in Elora, Ontario contains 18 lysimeters providing researchers with a unique opportunity to study soils. Lysimeters allow researchers to study the soil water budget, monitor the movement of nutrients through soil, microbial respiration, and greenhouse gas emissions in response to different crop rotations and ground warming on two soil types.
